Right now you can do this by copy-and-pasting the same bit of text in each post, but I thought an automatic way of adding one could be interesting – it would save time, and let you update the signature anytime without going back through each post individually.
What do you think? Would you use this feature if we had it? Would you want to be able to include custom scripts or styles in your signatures, or just text?
Great to know! I’ve recently been thinking this feature would be a good fit for a plugin, when those are supported. If you’re interested in helping build that out instead of a fork, it’d be great to have your input on this thread.
I’m thinking about doing an event at the end of July that requires a post signature. They’re definitely useful for blogging challenges, or blogathons like I’m thinking about doing. Yeah I’ve copied and pasted text before. Namely when using Tumblr.
I may not use it all the time, but this will be a thing for me at the end of this month. I’m doing a blogging event that could possibly go 50 hours. I’ll need a signature at the end of each post, to remind people where to go to donate, and how to notify me afterwards.
I don’t particularly want to copy and paste the same bit of text 100 times over. However, if I have to, I will.
I copy-paste my signature every time (or just write it from scratch as it is fairly minimal), but I can see how it can get really cumbersome for someone who blogs very frequently and has a lot of information in their signature that they want to add.
Thanks again for everyone’s input on this! I’m happy to announce we’ve just released this feature. You can now find it in the Write.as add-on store for just $10 to enable it permanently. It’ll also be open to everyone in WriteFreely shortly – see writefreely#330.
You’ll notice there’s now a “Post Signature” section on your blog’s Customize page, where you can enter Markdown, HTML, and shortcodes like our email subscription box (<!--emailsub-->) to add them to the end of every post.
Here’s a quick demo of how it all works:
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on this new feature!
Not yet @dino but it’s definitely something we can look into. I am wondering if this is a more wider enough consideration to make a default for everyone or if having a shortcode for “no post signature” would help?
